This school has been a wonderful change for my children who transferred this year from a much larger district. It is refreshing to be in such a close knit, family-like setting. The entire staff has been accommodating and helpful in many ways. The actual contact I have personally had with the teachers, principal, and various other staff members in this year alone is more than I ever had in the entire 7 years my children have been in school. My children are challenged for the first time in their school career. We have attended three other schools in neighboring districts and I have worked in one of those districts. Solon Springs school is by far the best school in the area.

This school is the worst school in the area, from administration right on down...the leadership, communication among parents and staff and general respect for children and learning is absolutely horrible.

Solon Springs shows favortism to the students with family members employed by the school. There is way too much nepotism taking place. If you are not from Solon Springs or come from a family 'established' in the community you are excluded from sports, clubs and other activities. Staff often overstep their authority making decisions based on their personal views rather than facts. It is not uncommon to hear employees of the school discussing students while out in the community. Solon Springs does a poor job of accommodating students with special needs. If you do not fit the mainstream you are labeled. There is too much focus on minor infractions and not enough on academics. Solon Springs is producing a generation of well behaved idiots. There are several teachers who really do care about the students and work to provide a well rounded education. Unfortunately their work is overshadowded by others.

Although there are some very nice teachers in this school who really do try to help the children, there are some who are very prejudicial. The school is very limited in what it has to offer the students. I do give them credit for setting up an after school tutoring program. We wanted our children to take advantage of a few things they do offer, but after 9th grade we intend to home school them.

as a graduate of this school i can say that it does not readily prepare you for the 'real world'. To have a guidence counseler tell you that your are not 'college material' really has an effect on a person's future. Especially after maintaining a 3.2 GPA. This is a 'clickish' school and I would advise parents to send their children to a more reputable school.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Wisconsin used the Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS), which includes the WKCE and WAA, to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 in math and reading, and in grades 4, 8 and 10 in language arts, science and social studies. The WSAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Wisconsin. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. In private schools, only voucher program participants are tested.
GreatSchools' ratings currently reflect 2012-13 testing data.



Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the WSAS test. As a result of these changes, proficiency scores for Wisconsin schools are lower than they were in previous years.

In 2013-2014 Wisconsin used the Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS), which includes the WKCE and WAA, to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 in math and reading, and in grades 4, 8 and 10 in language arts, science and social studies. The WSAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Wisconsin. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. In private schools, only voucher program participants are tested.
GreatSchools' ratings currently reflect 2012-13 testing data.



Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the WSAS test. As a result of these changes, proficiency scores for Wisconsin schools are lower than they were in previous years.

The different student groups are identified by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. If there are fewer than 5 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group. Subgroup scores for each school are only reported for students who were enrolled as of the fall enrollment count. The All students score includes results for all students who took the test, regardless of when they first enrolled in the school.
